Muscle Pain

Muscle pain or Myofascial Pain Syndrome is a condition that affects the muscles and fascia.

This condition usually occurs in association with pain generated from another source. This is an unfortunate consequence of how our bodies attempt to compensate for the initial pain generator.Fascia is a thin, white connective that covers every muscle. 

There are also primary muscular pain syndromes, most commonly fibromyalgia but also pain related to rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and hypermobility spectrum disorders such as Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.

Evaluation and treatment

After an evaluation for an underlying source of pain and treatment of systemic inflammation, muscle pain is typically treated with the goal of restoring muscle strength and balance at affected joints in an effort to correct disuse or abnormal postures used to control pain.


For those with primary muscle pain and a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia, an attitude of persistence is necessary both for the patient and clinician, as all therapies don’t uniformly work equally for each patient and it’s usually through a combination of therapies unique to each patient that we achieve our best outcomes.
